    Bronze in Fine Art/Still Life

This artwork has been mainly inspired by the still life paintings of such well-known masters of the 17th century as Juan de Zurbarán, Willem Heda, Willem Kalf, Johannes Vermeer and Rembrandt. What makes these photos recognizable is a special oil painting look which makes any observer wonder if this is a photograph at all. These images were made using light painting technique and are a result of a number of different exposures layered together in Photoshop. They were taken in complete darkness using a special torch to light up the different parts of the composition.
